Portraits from apartheid-era South Africa - in pictures | Art and design


The ZJS Ndimande photo studio was founded in Greytown, in what is now KwaZulu-Natal province, South Africa, in 1940. Many of the portraits taken at the studio between 1964-1983 show people posing against a dark curtain backdrop, often holding simple props. An archive of photographs during the period offers a different perspective on township life during apartheid and forms part of Bonhams’ modern and contemporary African art sale on Wednesday 18 March
